    tropical storms are fueled by warm tropical waters... Storms weaken over land.

    To be specific, if the land mass is mountainous like the island of Hispaniola, then it can disrupt the convection and weaken the cyclone. If it comes across swamp, like Wilma did when it back doored Florida from the Yucatan, it can actually gain strength. This next weekend could be very interesting, due to the location of the Atlantic high pressure ( "The Bermuda High" ), which is kinda east of where it has been the last few years. Stay in shape, and fix the dings on your big boy board. Get your chores done.

    Indeed, Wilma caught everyone off guard, can't believe how strong she got going over Florida, good example of how unpredictable these storms really are.

    Thanks and that's what I'd thought prior. Do they influence air masses over other water bodies that are separated only by narrow land like the narrower stretch of Central America or from the Gulf across Florida to the South Atlantic? The past week or so when those two storms west of Mexico were the only activity I was somehow hoping that would influence some Atlantic activity. Can't help from being optimistic!

    Effin roit! For you brahs with "bosses" at home, take care of the Honey-Do List like sisurfdogg is saying. Got to get that furlough.

    Thank you. Is this group frequent with their reports and fairly accurate? Know of any others?

    Hell yeah man. The reason I get up early every morning and paddle out, even when it ain't pretty.

    Yes he is, if there is a storm or a front in our window he will frequently put a video out and walk you through
    it and put it in terms that everyone understands....plus he surfs too!! Tropical Tidbits is another informational webcast you could check out, he is also very good.

    I had some of my best surf sessions ever the past 4-5 days, nothing like finding a spot all to yourself (maybe one or two others) and surfing till your arms fall off, i'm still buzzing from it
